There’s Absolutely Nothing To Dislike About Jordan Spieth, Well Almost

on

There’s absolutely nothing to dislike about Jordan Spieth.

Well, almost nothing.

If you are a Dallas Cowboys hater, and I personally know of a hundred, and I’m guessing there’s thousands more, then I’ve found the only aspect of the kid from Texas that won’t sit well with you.

He’s a kid from Texas, right. How could he not be a huge Cowboys fan?

When he’s not traveling on tour, Spieth attends home games at AT&T Stadium in Arlington with his family.

But for you Dallas haters, I’m afraid it goes even deeper.

He’s very tight with the most hated Cowboy of all, the one and only, Tony Romo.

Last year, on Romo’s 34th birthday, Spieth posted a photo Birthday boy Romo and @jordanspieth

So no doubt about it, he was at Romo’s house hanging.

And before Romo’s back surgery, the two played golf regularly.

In one of the last tournaments Romo played in, he paired with Spieth in the 2013 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

They held a lead for much of the tournament, then the final round came and Romo and Spieth struggled to get the ball in the hole.

The two combined for eight lip-outs, finishing third in the pro-am division.

“It was just one of those days,” Spieth said. “We both hit good putts on a lot of holes, and we had probably eight lip-outs combined today. Sometimes that happens.”

Said Romo: “You’ve got to get it in the hole sometimes, and we just missed our opportunities. … You’ve got to make some putts to go low.”

The twosome combined to shoot 68 in the final round at Pebble Beach, leaving them 29-under for the week, two shots back of the winning team.

Romo was watching every stroke of the final round of Spieth’s victory at The Masters on Sunday and sent a congratulatory text not long after the last putt dropped.

Congratulatory tweets came from former Cowboys stars such as Emmitt Smith, Deion Sanders, and Troy Aikman.

Even for you Cowboy haters, there’s still absolutely nothing to dislike about Jordan Spieth.

Hate the game, don’t hate the player.
